Fairhaven cottage description

WELCOME TO THE DISTINCTIVE COTTAGE COLLECTION ON WEST ISLAND AND SCONTICUT NECK PRESENTED BY HOWE ALLEN REALTY.

The home that you are previewing is the second oldest homestead on the island. Thoroughly renovated in 2007, the home's history has been preserved. Partially constructed from reclaimed ship timbers dating from the 18th century and complemented with materials that reflect an island vernacular this home is a favorite of return guests.

A galley-style kitchen featuring a gas range, microwave oven, dishwasher and refrigerator allow you to cook up a feast of seafood. One and a half bathrooms as well as an outdoor shower reduce the wait for a bathroom if you are sharing the home with others.

Two bedrooms, one with Queen bed the other with two twin beds are on opposite sides of the home. Additional sleeping can be found on the full-sized sofa. A front-loading washer/dryer complete the appliance package.

Additional amenities include 27' LCD HDTV, Surround Sound and high-speed wireless internet access. We also have a variety of games and books for your enjoyment.

A little information about the area:

West Island is one of the South Coast's best kept secrets. Located in Buzzard's bay, this small residential-only Island offers the visitor and resident peace and quiet or access to any number of action-packed pursuits.

Over half the island is State Conservation land offering many nature trails, wildlife viewing and truly impressive vistas. There are several choices for ocean access; the protected water (bayside) beach or the Buzzard's Bay beach (voted the #3 town beach in all of New England).

Originally farmland, the past two centuries have seen West Island gradually change to a vacation destination for locals who know what a gem they have so close to home. It is not uncommon to meet others during your stay who have been vacationing here for decades or who's family has owned the same home for nearly a century.

While maintaining its charm, West Island has also kept pace with technology. City Water and Sewer, high-speed internet, satellite television are just some of the amenities you will find while on our island.

Within 4 miles you will find two large supermarket chains, department stores as well as other well-known chain establishments. West Island is a mere 60 minutes from Boston, 45 minutes from Newport and under half an hour from the Bourne or Sagamore bridges.

This is an actual review by a renter:

Our family of 3 just returned from a wonderful week stay – it was idyllic and quiet in an up-dated cozy clean cottage with coastal personality, a place where you can set your own pace and be at ease – a terrific vacation or get-away solution.

The owners are conscientious yet realistic in the care and thought put into their home and yard. Daily family operations are easy with state of the art appliances and many stores and restaurant choices near by, but not too near. We were very comfortable hanging out, and felt very safe with open doors and coming and going to the local beach or for one of many local walks and bike rides. We let our 13 year old bike solo on the island to explore – can you tell we’re from the city?

Our rainy day plans for the New Bedford art galleries and Whaling Museum never transpired - we were too happy on island (and it never rained!). But there is plenty to do close by with Westport, the winery and Horseneck beach, Dartmouth and shopping, and a tour of the town of Fairhaven should one need diversions.

We made great use of the fenced landscaped yard and deck for meals and many games, and kept up with work and emails via the wireless connection. The beds were perfect and the outdoor shower a plus. We hope to return and enjoy the south coast light, and changing seasons.
